I knew king cobras were big but to see a man holding one, it really drives home its size! They're the largest *venomous* snakes in the world. Their venom is a powerful neurotoxin causing respiratory and cardiac arrest. Yet they try to avoid people, snakes (including other types of cobra) being their only diet. Probably due to habitat loss, they're now listed as vulnerable.
